Awatif Kaissi

Policy and Research

My name is Awatif Kaissi and I am a postgraduate student on the Global Health and Development programme (MSc) at the University College London. As a recent graduate from King’s College London with a BSc in Global Health and Social Medicine, I am a firm advocate of health being more than a medical matter and the importance of social justice. My interests lie within public policy, mental health, and international development and this opportunity with AHO will allow me to gain critical insight into the social determinants of health and develop the skills needed to critically instigate change. I look forward to working with this inspiring organisation as a policy and research volunteer to help advocate and contribute to promoting health equity across Africa.
